Career Planning and Placement Strategies for Postsecondary Students with Disabilities. Revised.
Brill, Jay; Hartman, Rhona C.
This fact sheet is designed to be a resource for disabled students themselves and for counselors, administrators, and instructors who are involved in career planning and placement strategies for disabled persons in postsecondary academic and technical institutions. The fact sheet is organized into five sections. The Selected Campus Strategies section provides ideas currently working in postsecondary institutions that can be used by career counselors or administrators who are attempting to establish similar programs on their campuses. Programs described include the following: campus-metropolitan area public and private employer cooperation, on-campus recruiter training, cooperative education, computerized job banks, campus-vocational rehabilitation services cooperation, vocational-technical training, and nondegree programs. The second section summarizes four federal programs: the federal-state Vocational Rehabilitation partnership, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management's placement program for hiring handicapped individuals in the federal civil service, Projects with Industry, and the President's Committee on Employment of the Handicapped. The third section describes three programs with a national focus: Job Opportunities for the Blind, National Center on Employment of the Deaf, and Training and Placement Services sponsored by the Epilepsy Foundation of America. A section providing names and addresses of selected resource persons knowledgeable in the fields of career planning for disabled persons follows. The final section contains a selected and annotated bibliography listing materials for disabled job seekers, for the general audience, and for career counselors; it also includes a list of selected resource organizations.
